I had two back fusions in 2007. I have been without pain all these years! Dr. Sullivan is by far the best back surgeon around! Thank you Dr. Sullivan!

I can't possibly say enough positive things about Dr. Sullivan. He operated on my brother's lumbar spine years ago and 2 levels of my C-spine last year. I was in agony for months after a fall down the stairs. My brother's surgery and mine was 100% successful. We did both go dedicate ourselves to out P/T. Its been 2 years and I feel like I never had an injury at all. He is an amazing surgeon, plus he and his staff are friendly, timely and professional. I just referred my fianc? to him.

In 2011 my then early sixties husband was crawling to the bathroom at night on his elbows and knees, in a great deal of backpain. Our GP had the MRI, made an appointment for next day with Dr Sullivan, who had a cancellation two days after that. At AMMC outpatient surgical center, he was wheeled into surgery and 45 minutes later Dr Sullivan was standing at my chair telling me all went well and he could go home in an hour. The results were spectacular. Neighbors still talk about the total change

Dr Sullivan was highly recommended to me for my lumbar surgery and he seemed miffed that I had consulted other physicians first. Imagine my surprise when I was told my back was so bad that I only has a a 65% chance to be improved with a multi-level fusion procedure and he would not operate on me. I had been to another neurosurgeon for a consultation and was given a quite different prognosis and surgical option I was stunned with his abrupt and undiplomatic demenour.
